As a game manufacturer, if you want to annoy as many players as possible at once, it is now a good way to throw the term “live service” into the room when making a new announcement. Once established primarily by Destiny, this not so new form of always online gameplay borrows many elements of the world of MMOs and is designed to keep a game relevant for years through content updates.

Alone, that doesn’t quite work most of the time, as last seen on Marvel’s Avengers. Nevertheless, the model is obviously profitable for manufacturers, as a job posting from Warner Bros. Interactive shows. A Games Production MBA is being sought for the company’s Production Department. The announcement states:

“WBIE is currently working on a multitude of new projects, ranging from casual games to core games, spanning our well-known brands on all platforms (consoles digital, mobile), including a strong focus on live service.”

Even if that does not mean that from now on all games from Warner Bros. will rely on a corresponding model, the tender clearly shows the company’s thrust.

The following games are currently in development at Warner Bros. Interactive, others that have not yet been announced can be assumed:

  • Lego Star Wars: Die Skywalker-Saga (2. Quartal 2021, PC, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
  • Back 4 Blood (2021, PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
  • Gotham Knights (2022, PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
  • Hogwarts Legacy (2022, PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One)
  • Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League (2022, PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S)

Warnr Bros. has often attracted attention in the past due to excessive real money payment methods in various games, for example in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Harry Potter: Wizard Unite and Mortal Kombat 11.
